how to make chocolate peanut butter fudge popsicles
The main ingredients that make these vegan fudge popsicles UBER CREAMY are peanut butter and the FULL FAT coconut milk. I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again Thai Kitchen full fat coconut milk is my GO-TO. The consistency is BY FAR the best I’ve tried and I’ve tried a ton of different brands. You can also buy it organic if that is important to you. By no means do you have to use the Thai Kitchen brand for this recipe, but it is what I tested these vegan popsicles with and it’s one of my staples.
If you are making your own peanut butter cups for the fudge pops, use this recipe! You’ll need to make these first, before you start the fudgesicles. You can also buy some vegan peanut butter cups and cut those up for these creamy popsicles. I suggest having 5-6 on hand and then you can decide how many you want to add to the vegan fudge popsicles. Some vegan peanut butter cup brands you can buy to save on time are Justin’s, Theo, Free2Be (for a nut free option) and Unreal Peanut Butter Cups.
When you are ready to start making the fudgesicles, combine the peanut butter, coconut milk, maple syrup and vanilla together in the food processor and blend until smooth. In a separate bowl, add the cocoa powder and oat milk and whisk until a thick but smooth consistency has formed. Add 1-2 more tbsp if a thick paste forms. Then add the peanut butter mixture to the cocoa mixture. Whisk/stir until it’s fully combined.
Chop up 5-6 peanut butter cups and fold them into the fudgesicles batter. Then divide the mixture into 5-6 popsicle moulds and freeze until solid (6 hours-overnight).
These vegan popsicles are super simple to make, the hard part is just waiting for them to solidify in the freezer!!
